Delhi team will take on Mumbai Indians in the final of the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 10 November. A positive result for the Capitals would end their 13-year-long wait to lift the already prestigious T20 Trophy, while a win for Mumbai Indians would result in them winning the record 5 times.

Ahead of the marquee event, former Indian opener and cricket analyst Akash Chopra said who would win from Mumbai and Delhi. Akash also revealed that DC should implement their first IPL to win the crown.

In a video uploaded on his YouTube channel, Chopra said that Marcus Stoinis’ move to promote the current form of batting order and power-hitter Shimron Hetimer, Capitals will benefit. This will strengthen their batting line-up and may help them post or chase a large total

He said, ‘The Capitals of Delhi have brought Stoinis to bat and Hetmyer has got form. I think there are two very important components of this team, ”said Akash Chopra.

Ajinkya Rahane should start the innings for Delhi Capital

However, cricket commentator Stonis is not confident about opening the innings for DC as he feels Rahane would be a better option in the face of Mumbai’s lethal pace attack which claims Jaspreet Bumrah, Trent Boult and James Pattinson. Akash said that Stoinis might struggle to go against these three seamers with the new ball.

“But Stoinis as an opener in front of Mumbai, whose bowling standard is very high, I’m not 100% sure if Stoinis will be able to score runs.”

“They can actually go back to Rahane as an opener. I will really entertain that idea when I see bowling in front of them – Bumrah, Bolt and Pattinson – whether slogans will be possible with the new ball, I am not 100% sure, “said the 43-year-old

Further in the video, Chopra said that its form Shikhar Dhawan It will be very important for Delhi as the team is heavily dependent on their opening batsman. However, one thing that may be of concern to Dhawan is that he had won one of the last two matches against Mumbai. The veteran batsman is also hopeful that captain Shreyas Iyer and power-hitter Rishabh Pant will regain their form in this big match.

He said, ‘Shikhar Dhawan’s form is very important for him. When he does well, the team also does well. We have seen that he batted well throughout the season and also in the previous match, although he was dismissed for the Duck for Mumbai. “

“I am waiting for the form of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant. The backend of the tournament has been a bit cold for Shreyas and Pant for the entire tournament. Hopefully they will come forward and do well in this game. “Chopra added.

I am going to Delhi: Akash Chopra

Famous commentator It is likely that South African fast bowler Enrique Narje will play the game-changer in the final for the first time. He also praised the bowling attack with spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel and seamers Kagiso Rabada, Natarje and Stoinis.

He said, ‘His bowling with Rabada, Nortje, Ashwin and Axar is good. The bowler who took four wickets and Marcus Stoinis has a chance to take wickets. I am going towards an unlikely character. He has done very well, but you don’t usually think he can be a game-changer. I am going with Enrique Narje. “

“I think he will give some blow to Mumbai Indians, which will increase the inclination towards Delhi’s capitals,” he said. He has got pace and bounce and has wickets behind him with Rabada for support. “

Akash Chopra selected and signed Delhi Capitals as potential champions of IPL 2020. “I am going with Delhi.”
